WhatsApp have revealed that they will finally be enabling a group call feature in their forthcoming update.

Group calls and group video calls will enable up to four people to chat at the same time, using the same end to end encryption of all WhatsApp services, meaning the calls can’t be interfered with by hackers.

The update will be rolling out from today (July 31st).

Here’s how to video call using the new WhatsApp update:

Make sure you have the latest iOS or Android version of WhatsApp ​
Open up the app and start a one-on-one video call with a contact
If you want to add more people in, simply click the ‘add participant’ button at the top right of your screen
Keep adding until you hit the four people video chat limit.
